DJ REHBERG

​​DJ Rehberg has had a life long passion for dogs, especially Siberian Huskies. In early 2016, while seeking an activity to improve and strengthen the bond between him and his Siberian Husky, Sylvie, he discovered the sport of nose work. He immediately recognized this is the sport that dogs were literally born to play. Since that first class, he has worked to improve his skills, knowledge and education in the sport of nose work. Over the years, DJ Rehberg has attended several classes, seminars, and online courses. He has also attended nose work camps where he was able to learn from several of the premiere nose work instructors from across the country. DJ has co-presented nose work workshops, volunteers at trials and is a certified USCSS Judge.
